Annual Reports and Accounts

At the end of each financial year, IPSA publishes an annual report and accounts.

The Compliance Officer for IPSA, who is established as a separate public authority from IPSA under the Parliamentary Standards Act 2009, publishes a separate report from IPSA, which can be found at the end of IPSA's report.

The report covers the key activities undertaken by IPSA during the financial year 2015-16, including:

  • our work during the General Election 2015, to ensure a smooth financial transition for MPs between one Parliament and the next;
  • the planning work for a wide ranging programme of improvements to our support of MPs and their staff;
  • our consultation and implementation of our determination on MPs’ pay; and
  • the outcome of the Court of Appeal case on whether IPSA was required to publish the redacted images of MPs’ receipts in response to Freedom of Information requests.

Also included is a separate report by the Compliance Officer for IPSA which details the work undertaken by his office during the financial year.
